A man was surprised to find an outdated Heinz promotion code sent him to a porn site. 

A ketchup lover with a slightly outdated bottle got a big surprise this week when he attempted to take part in a Heinz “Design Your Own Label” promotion and accidentally wound up surfing Internet porn.

According to The Local, a man identified only as Daniel K. had a bottle of Heinz ketchup with a QR code that was supposed to take him to the “Design Your Own Label” contest. But the bottle was an old one and Heinz’s ownership of the domain had expired and been picked up by the Fundorado porn company. A horrified Daniel went right to Heinz’s Facebook page to complain.

"Your ketchup really isn't for under-age people," he said.

Heinz apologized for the mixup and as a peace offering told Daniel he could create his own label and they would send him a free ketchup bottle with his label on it. The Fundorado porn company also jumped in to offer Daniel a free membership.
